HOW IT HAPPENED
Just like their win on Monday, the Beacons attack erupted scoring at will against their non-conference opponent. UMB tacked on 12 goals through the first 30 minutes of play, while the defense held the host Pride to just five scores, including one in the second frame. After the break, the Beacons recorded back-to-back five goal quarters to clinch the victory, while only allowing four goals against. UMB held the Pride scoreless in the third to gain some insurance on the scoreboard.
Joe Mauceri (Scituate, Mass.) continued the best week of his young collegiate career, as he registered a career-best five goals. Senior Clay Arnold (Syracuse, N.Y.) continued his surge as the Beacons top attackman scoring his second straight hat trick.
Transfer Tre Mason (Kelowna, B.C.) got back in on the action offensive as well netting three goals to go along with two assists to help UMB most their record back to .500.
Cameron Dixson (Wayland, Mass.) improved to 2-1 on the year, after collecting his second straight win. The netminder made one stop in the first two frames, while Alex Fawcett (Londonderry, N.H.) closed out the win with a pair of stops.
Jacob Sinclair-Steeves (North Reading, Mass.) was dominant tallying a career-high 14 ground balls, while Tommy Wilber, Jr. (Walpole, Mass.) lifted the Beacons defense with three caused turnovers to go along with a career-best eight ground balls.
Sinclair-Steeves was nearly perfect on the face-off "X" as he went 20-for-23, while Tom Redmond (Scituate, Mass.) finished 7-for-10 on the dot.
